@Old School: I do realize that a DVD-ROM drive has the same basic components as a CD-ROM drive (how else would we be able to have combo drives now?), but while most DVD-ROM drives are indeed backwards compatible, it's not required by the standard(s), and Ninty certainly didn't pay for a Red Book license, so anyone wanting to play audio CDs on their Wii (like me) are pretty stuck. No one using homebrew (softmodding, at least) has gotten the Wii to just read a CD in it yet -- though they're working on PSX emulators, and music players have been created already, those all require .bin or .iso files to work (or individual music files instead of full discs). Even the Gamecube used mini-DVDs instead of CDs of some sort, so chances are they didn't want to pay the rainbow book licensing fees for either disc-based console, which would save them (and the consumer) money for something Ninty didn't want to bother with anyway.

@Old School: While I agree that the first DSi-exclusive game could've been much better, and I'm also somewhat disappointed with what they chose to do with it, you seem to be frothing mad this morning for some reason. Please calm down.

If you've never played a Zelda game ever, go for ALttP, then OoT, then MM. A Link to the Past is straight-up classic Zelda action; treat yourself to that before heading for any of the 3D versions.

I'm pretty sure it's not physically possible for a Wii to read CDs, but a DVD Channel would be pretty awesome (and it is possible to use your Wii as a DVD player via homebrew).

I never had to use the Super Guide, but bear in mind that I've been playing Mario games since I was three and have played the original Super Mario Bros. at least once a week for the past 23 years. I can blitz through Super Mario World with no problems nowadays, yet I still found this very tough at times, so that should give you an indication"

@jbrodack: believe me, we both looked for an online save before deciding to agree to help each other out (if he beat Exploration first, he'd send me his save file; if i beat Exploration first, i'd send him my save file). If there'd been one available online from a reputable site, we would've (or I would've, at least) used it. :3

and i totally agree with the huge sense of accomplishment for beating any level in the bit.trip games. they're really hard, but a lot of fun.

@WaLuigi1982: Two things.

  • If you would like to not receive e-mails from Nintendo Life, there is a radio button under 'My Profile' (in the box at the top of the site window, the one that has your username/icon in it) where you can choose to receive or not to receive e-mails from Nintendo Life.
  • If you have a problem with how you were treated the other night, there is a contact form here for you (also located at the top of the screen, under 'contact'). Feel free to make your account deletion/ban request with that form, if that's what you really want; us mods can't do anything like that. Only an admin can ban/delete/whatev' someone. :3

@Stuffo: now that we've all kinda deduced what happened, I think it's time to lock this one. Problem solved? :3


Thanks, Dragon. Just adding my response here also: WaLuigi, c'mon. If getting your wrist slapped prevented you from accepting my welcoming you to continue participating in the forums, then that's on you. Resurrect any thread you want, so long as you're adding something meaningful to those older threads in particular (pointless comments typically go overlooked in current threads). Prosody addressed this in his closing remarks. -Vendetta

Just to add my two cents to this topic, everyone is welcome to post in any topic they want as long as it contributes something worthwhile and meaningful. Don't let a small setback put you off - grab the forum by the horns and really show them who's boss. Prosody

@jbrodack: i think you're thinking of the save that was available for Beat, not Core. Core had no such save-file available for download. :3

also, i greatly disagree with the 'there's no sense of beating the game if you've already got it unlocked' thing -- Control was ridiculously easy compared to Exploration, but I can see why they would've laid out the songs to have Control last, as it was definitely the best song out of the three aurally. it made no sense to have Exploration be so crazy hard to beat when Control was so easy, IMO, but even after I beat Control, I fired up Exploration and finally beat that for myself, too, and I feel just as accomplished as if I hadn't had Adam's save-file. I still busted my rear for days to beat Exploration, and it feels great to have finally beaten it (after taking a play-break with Control instead). :3

@Adam: heck yeah, we'll tag-team Void if we have to in order to get through it. :D

@Adam: turned it on today, beat Control on the first try. figured 'what the heck', tried Exploration, and beat it on the first try too. Core is officially pwnt, hahaha, can't wait for Void. :3

I must thank you for getting me back into these games, and also again for the save file. They're much more fun when you know someone else out there is suffering through the same things as you are, and i think beating Control helped me to get through Exploration finally (light at the end of the tunnel and all that).
